Live Your Story

A Love Note to Myself

Ok so I ‘ve been inspired by an activity that includes sending a Valentine to yourself. I also wrote a similar poster for a classroom.

Your painting is improving .

It is amazing what happens when you let go of comparing and doubts and trust yorself. You are kind and always try to help people. Your book ideas are awesome. Keep writing. Pay no attention to negativity. Listen to the tree’s breeze and all its realities.

It’s been raining cats and dogs. Remember there may be a drought but the rain is coming. I mean literally it has come! I should paint this?

books, Live Your Story

Live Your Story

I wrote this poem as a poster. I went through so many colors. My favorite was a much lighter shade of blue.

Somehow I envisioned it on a wall someplace. I recall an artist who travels the world painting his words and drawings. With each stroke he gives life to old buildings.

When asked why he does it, he says to bring color and smiles to otherwise overlooked villages. Not exactly these words but something like this.

I want my work to mean the same. To make people smile. To make people feel good. Like a song that plays on in your mind, days after you’ve listened to it.

And so, I continue to work on my live your story poem. Yeah, I can use this poem to practice hand lettering and get comfortable with my lettering style.

 

AND now of course I want to create a book.

sketches for writing a picture book
perhaps a new layout for the poem?

This whole world is big you see. This whole world is BIG enough for you and me.   Yeah LIVE YOUR LOVE STORY AND SHARE YOUR GLORY.

Something told me to post with this word. I started this morning but had to run off. Don’t want to. There’s so much art for me to do! I’ll DO it and I will do it with love.

SO excited for my book and all that’s to come. Here me, in the words of a school sign I read today, ROAR!!!
